Five years of physician performance data places Massachusetts in the forefront of quality reporting
Massachusetts Health Quality Partners (MHQP) today released the organization's fifth annual Quality Insights: Clinical Quality in Primary Care report, comparing the performance of 150 medical groups across the state. The results are available at www.mhqp.org, where consumers can compare how well medical groups perform in meeting national standards for providing preventive care, helping patients manage chronic conditions such as diabetes, and avoiding the overuse of certain medications and tests. MHQP was recently chosen by the Massachusetts Health Care Quality and Cost Council to develop a three-year plan for the public reporting of comparative health care quality and cost information for the Commonwealth.
